Round 9 Stats Preview - #ADLvWEL

Ahead of Adelaide United’s crucial Hyundai A-League Round 9 home clash with Wellington Phoenix at Coopers Stadium on Sunday night, Opta has provided the key statistics for the match.

The Reds have won their last two games against Wellington, scoring an impressive seven goals without conceding in those fixtures.

Adelaide have secured victories in five of their last six home games against the Phoenix at Coopers Stadium, scoring three goals or more on four occasions in that span.

Despite the Reds’ winless start to the campaign they have remarkably only ever once shipped more than two goals at home during Head Coach Guillermo Amor’s reign. The solitary time that occurred was in November 2015 against Melbourne City.

Six United players – Eugene Galekovic, Iacopo La Rocca, Tarek Elrich, Dylan McGowan, Ben Garuccio and Isaias – have played every minute of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season. No other team in the competition has more than four players to have achieved this feat. 

Adelaide United host Wellington Phoenix in Round 9 of the Hyundai A-League 2016/17 season on Sunday, 4 December at Coopers Stadium. Kick-off is at 6.30pm ACDT.
